Where do we go from here? What will we look like? Where will we be located and who will we serve?
How can we expand our services to empower professors to use technology effectively? Should we be co-creating class content with our professors? Should we offer graphic design, video editing, and learning activity services? What does “help,” “consultation,” “support,” “development,” and “reporting” look like now and in the future?
